Jeremy Clarkson was seen hitting out at Sadiq Khan once again on social media, as he questioned when the UK can ‘get rid’ of the current Mayor of London.
The TV presenter, 60, has made it clear he’s taken issue with Mr Khan, who has been serving as the Mayor of London since 2016, as he branded the politician a ‘tool’ in a tweet shared on Wednesday.
As his Twitter feed was taken over by everyone commenting on the US election as it plays out in America, with Joe Biden and current president Donald Trump going head-to-head, Jeremy directed his followers back to the UK and its own government.
He tweeted: ‘Never mind America. When can we get rid of the tool @SadiqKhan?’
Despite being tagged directly by Jeremy, Mr Khan hasn’t replied to his post.
It comes after Jeremy was seen calling for Mr Khan to resign as Mayor of London, as he vented his frustration over traffic congestion due to the implementation of new cycling lanes throughout the capital.
Last month, Jeremy shared a snap of a queue of traffic as he was headed into London. Hitting out at the mayor, he added the caption: ‘@mayorofldn This is what your idiotic cycle lanes are creating.’
‘Just quietly resign,’ Jeremy fumed, adding: ‘Go away. Open a shop in Harrogate. Be gone.’
New posts have been put in place to separate cycling lanes from other lanes of traffic as a safety measure, however, people have complained that it is causing more congestion on the roads and disrupting traffic flow.
It’s a move that has clearly irked Jeremy, as he shared another road snap to his Instagram feed, sarcastically commenting on the lack of cyclists using the new and improved lanes.
He wrote alongside his post: ‘It’s a beautiful day so where are the bloody cyclists?’
It’s not just recently that Jeremy has hit out as Mr Khan, as he called him a ‘halfwit’ in a tweet he posted in 2019. It read: ‘I’ve examined the number of road works and closures in London at the moment and I’ve decided the mayor must be a halfwit.’
Earlier this year, Mr Khan revealed his plans to create new cycleways in London to aid social distancing and give people a ‘safer and more sustainable’ way to travel into the city amid the global pandemic.
It’s part of the mayor’s London ‘Streetspace’ programme, which aims to construct a strategic cycling network and has seen bollards installed to divide cyclists from other vehicles.
Speaking of the move, Mr Khan had said in May: ‘I’m determined to give Londoners more safe and sustainable alternatives to travelling by car, especially when our public transport system is under strain due to Covid-19. We’re creating essential new cycleways across our city.’
